Not really, but g++ 2.95 is going to become much stricter WRT to C++
correctness.  Requiring -fpermissive for code that used to be accepted 
only with a warning is really intentional (not that I fully agree with 
it, but it's not up to me to decide it :-)

It might be nice to mention this trick somewhere in the FAQ.
Ok to install?
